I've run through New Zealand!!

One of the trainer's at my gym showed me one of the courses you can run thats built into the treadmill, basically you can choose different views of places around the world, you can programme how fast, what incline etc and time. Today I chose the New Zealand run and I felt a different person I had all these views to look at and felt I was actually there (It's videos of the run and very scenic so when there's a hill the incline goes up and down if you're going down a slope etc) I completely forgot what I was doing as I was so engrossed and was totally surprised when Laura told me I had finished my 25 minutes ..needless to say I can't wait to do my next run..black forest in Germany here I come. Sorry it's so long winded I never thought 6weeks ago I could be excited about running...53 and loving it

I've got those at my gym! They're great - you forget that you are running.
